Giving Everything

Widows are visible everywhere in today’s readings. Jesus denounces those scribes who pray impressive prayers but devour widows’ houses. He commends the poor widow who in his view gave far more than the major donors. Jesus doesn’t see her simply as an object of compassion or charity. She, like the widow of Zarephath who shares her last bit of food with Elijah, does something of great importance.

Camino de Santiago

Sunday, November 11 at 9:30 am

Walking 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago Since the Middle Ages Christians have walked this ancient pilgrimage across northern Spain. Translated as “The Way of Saint James” this long walk traverses incredibly beautiful scenery through the Pyrenees mountains and through tiny villages dotted with buildings, churches and bridges that date back as far as the 11th century. Come and hear why 278,000 people completed at least part of this pilgrimage last year. David and Anne Andert walked the Camino Frances in fall 2016 and the Camino del Norte in fall 2018. The Frances was a 40 day journey, and we know that whenever the number “40” appears in the bible, something significant is about to happen. If you’ve watched the movie, “The Way” with Martin Sheen, you’ve seen the path they walked in 2016. Warning: the Camino gets under your skin. You may find yourself making plans, too. (Anderts also started a chapter of “American Pilgrims on the Camino” here in Wisconsin.)
